Court arraigns primary school teacher for slandering Saraki on Facebook

The Magistrate Court in Illorin the state capital of Kwara state has prosecuted Biodun Baba a 37-year-old civil servant for slandering the Senate President, Bukola Saraki on facebook.

Biodun, who is a  primary school teacher in Kwara State was accused of offences bordering on criminal act, injurious falsehood, printing or engraving matter known to be defamatory and insulting to a religion by Jimoh Adesina, an All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain.

However, a twist came up after the case was called up. The complainant's counsel told the Magistrate court that his client requested for a withdrawal of the case as well meaning Nigerians intervened. The matter was later adjourned till August 3 for ruling on the application for the case withdrawal after the court house listened to the arguments.
